Warm temps, chance of rain on tap for Tuesday

— An approaching cold front will push a wedge of cooler air from the north into North Carolina, and by week’s end, high temperatures – in the unseasonably warm 70s over the past week – will drop closer to normal.

Overnight and into Tuesday temperatures will rise into the 70s and fog could impact the morning commute, according to WRAL meteorologist Mike Maze.

“There will not be a need for jackets Tuesday, but keep the umbrellas close because there is a chance for rain throughout the day,” he said.

Although there is rain in the forecast through Thursday, none of those days will be a total washout.

“Temperatures will retreat back into the 60s on Wednesday and temperatures will continue to drop on New Year’s Eve,” Maze said.

The outlook for New Year’s Eve looks promising for outdoor First Night festivities.

Thursday will start out cloudy and wet, with rain likely, especially morning to midday, he said.

“There may be a chance of rain for the New Year’s Eve festivities, but it will also, we believe, push out all this unsettled weather and bringing us back to more seasonable temperatures,” Maze said.

Temperatures will be in the 50s for First Night Raleigh.
